|Summary:||[10.6] Font-weight bolder/lighter failures with Helvetica Neue.|

Description Philippe Wittenbergh 2010-01-12 16:36:37 PST
Safari/WebKit running on 10.6 fails to use some font-weights when specifying font-weight lighter/bolder. The 'Medium' and 'Ultra Light' faces are particularly affected. The cascade displays correctly on Gecko based browsers. Testcase: cascade: nested font-weight bolder/lighter. Actual results: the last two lines display with the same face Expected results: the last two lines display with different faces ---- In bug 6484 comment 31 a little hack was introduced to work around a 10.5 bug with the same font (<rdar://problem/5781372>). It is coming back to bite ? https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6484#c31

Created attachment 46410 [details] screen shot Screenshot, WebKit latest on the left, Minefield latest nightly on the right (Firefox 3.0.x, 3.5.x and 3.6rc display the same).

(In reply to comment #3) > Is this a duplicate of bug 18323? I'm not sure; iirc, this was working much better on 10.5.8. I can't verify that at the moment, though.

It looks the same in Safari 4.0.4 on Mac OS X 10.5.8. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 18323 ***
